Halloween Edition: The Tricky Patty
I have a face that tells you that you would want to play poker with me, cos hun-nay you're gonna have a windfall.
So it's really too bad that I’m not Dan Bilzerian or a living, breathing God of Gamblers, but believe me when I say I have a few tricks up my sleeves.
So we know that there is no stopping the K-Wave because the world has fallen in love with so many things about them like their pop culture, language, food ...technology...but there remains pocket of people such as my husband and parents who just can’t accept the taste of kimchi.
They have not caught up with the K-Wave, but there's hope yet. Because I will infiltrate their defense and slowly loosen their willpower *evil laughter*
Kimchi Beef Patty with Fried Buckwheat Noodles
This is an easy meal that looks good, tastes good but easy to prep and wash up after.
Better yet, I got compliments from my husband and parents even though I sneaked in some kimchi.
Here's how I did it.
Prep the aromatics and veggies:
Just slice up some shallots, chillies, garlic cloves, scallions and cabbage,
Prep the Kimchi patty:
Chop up some kimchi, prawns and add to the minced beef. Season with some salt, pepper, onion powder and add scallions to the mix.
1. Fry the kimchi patties in a wok until they are cooked, but not overdone. In a separate pot, boil water and start boiling your buckwheat noodles.
2. With the residue oil in wok, fry shallots, garlic cloves and chillies. Then add veggies.
3. When veggies start to soften, add buckwheat noodles and stir well. Add a little bit of soy sauce for colour and taste.That's it!
